The AI See You of Candlewhisper Archive is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jan Yew-Harry with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.6 billion Archivists live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monaster. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Archivian economy, worth a remarkable 4,068 trillion slightly grubby dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 423,851 slightly grubby dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,478,642 per year while the poor average 34,020, a ratio of 72.9 to 1.

Loading sixteen tons of laundry gets you another year older and deeper in debt, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, chrome-clad space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on, and artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Candlewhisper Archive's national animal is the Six-Fingered Ugly Dolphin-Octopus Thing, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Unlimited Cheap Data.

Candlewhisper Archive is ranked 26,354th in the world and 80th in Forest for Largest Populations, with 9.60 billion Capita.
